Rainy Days and Mondays

With the entire world closed, it looks like it may be awhile before I can do any traveling. With that in mind, I’m re-posting from my original blog. I created the blog to keep family informed while I took my mom on a cruise to Greece.

Day 5:

Well its Monday and this afternoon we start the cruise. Rained all day yesterday and it's still raining off and on today.

Found out the everything is closed on Sundays. Couldn't find anywhere to eat, so we snacked and watched tv.

TV in Venice is interesting at best. The programming says there are four English channels. One is a never ending infomercial for a ultra sound home device, that, as advertised, will make your butt look firm and smooth, as well as solving a diverse list of problems. A second channel is EuroSport, which is not in English, has nothing to do with anything remotely English. Which leaves BBC (and not BBC America which has redeeming qualities) and CNN.

Which leads me to proclaim, Mr. Bean is actually funny in Italian. Really.
